Thursday Thoughts

Last weekend was one of the nephew's birthdays. His 11th. Instead of a birthday party, he now gets to choose a birthday dinner place. He chose Central Diner and ate his usual French Toast drenched in syrup with fries on the side and a piece of cake for dessert.

Another nephew, the 16 year old, was away for the weekend on a"mini" hike in preparation for a week long hike this summer. I think the summer hike will be 100 miles - ?!!

And another nephew, the almost 14 year old, was learning to climb trees in preparation for a summer job working with a guy who cuts down trees. He sent us photos of him climbing up high, standing out on a branch, all the ropes & safety gear & such - it looks scary!We've watched the pros in our backyard and I can't believe my nephew is learning to do that kind of work! He said he'd rather do that than work in a fast food place.

What We're Eating:

  • Leftovers from last weekend
  • Breakfast sandwiches (egg, cheese, ham, tomato)
  • Dessert: Cake, Pocky, Girl Scout Cookies

What We're Watching:

  • We're enjoying Spring Baking Championship. I don't like rhubarb, but it was interesting to see what kinds of rhubarb pie the bakers created (other than the usual strawberry-rhubarb, which 2 bakers made).
  • Gotham continues to annoy me and I was so happy to see that there are only 2 episodes left! Forever! And it's on break for several weeks!
  • Poor us: ever since Dish & HBO parted ways, we've been getting HBO through Amazon Prime BUT it's suck a pain to remember when everything airs and we miss setting up HBO shows on the DVR and then never worrying about forgetting an episode.
  • Of course, that's as long as the DVR works, which it didn't do for last week's Madam Secretary. It's supposed to record it for an extra hour, but, oops, nope, it malfunctioned. Grrrr.
  • I am enjoying Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor on Supergirl even if the show has been losing my interest.
  • I watched A Star is Born and enjoyed it even though I knew how it would all end.

What I'm Reading:
Magazines. Between new issues and a bunch MIL dropped off, the pile is huge.
